Be careful where you step....


We love this park in Syracuse on Lake Onondaga

There are two paved paths along the 5 mile stretch, one for pedestrians (we never saw that odd white man stepping on our path)



and one for wheeled vehicles including roller blades, bikes, surreys, strollers, and a weird circular bike that families can pedal together.


we saw wildlife
almost black squirrels, not gray like at home
lots and lots of Canadian Geese. This massive crossing left us choosing our steps carefully....
They did not care if we wanted by, they did not care about the giant poodle breathing down their necks.
We saw lots of trees...
 This wasn't one of those stick on faces, this one was nature laughing at us. 

Cole finally gave out. Too much fun for too many days. He planted it...

 So we took turns walking the pedestrian path.One of us staying to wait with the poodle. Wait, watch, be still.

  1. Cole was just trying to help - if you two humans were too foolish to stop and sit in the shade, it certainly wasn't his fault...

  2. I saw a huge nursery of Canada goslings last year. They took over a park just like this. There were four or five females with them. Not sure if they were moms or nursemaids. Very interesting.

  13. Chloe the Smelly Basset does that too. She just throws herself down and refused to go further. And we know you can't move a stubborn basset!
